Combo Box Content Control Globalization Issue

  1. Hi all

    I've stumbled into an issue that I hope isn't a Word bug.

    I use Combo Box Content Controls to display a list of values that users choose from. This works really well in the English language.
    Two other languages that I support are Arabic and Thai.

    In both Arabic and Thai documents, the users want English text to display in 11pt but Arabic/Thai (complex script) text to display in 14pt. I achieve this using formatting in the Normal style (see the following two screen shots)

    This works well for Arabic text.
    The problem is that when a user selects a combo box value in the Thai language, the Thai text reverts to 11pt.

    Can anyone explain this behaviour, point out what I may have done wrong, or offer suggestions?

    (Apologies if this is the correct place to post this question, I couldn't see any better locations..)

    Thanks
    Matt
